Frugal Finds: January 2017 Edition

In January we were able to go to a flea market, and we saw some pretty great things!  I chose just a few items to bring home that I knew I would not be able to live without.  One was a bread box, and the other was some books for Howard.  I collect bread boxes, and they are an awesome way to store things - they are pretty, hold a lot, and stack!  I have one for cookie cutters, one for my cloth napkins, one for greeting cards, one for my pricing stuff for the flea markets, and now, one for bread.  And books, well, I'm a sucker for books that I know will be useful once we start homeschooling, plus, Howard LOVES Magic School Bus!
 1 Bread Box $5
8 Books @ $0.25 each = $2

We were also able to make a run to the thrift store one day.  I am always looking for shirts, since two-year-olds are messy, and some how I always end up getting dirty when Howard is dirty.  I'm not sure why that is, but it's just the way it works out.   Howard also LOVES to get new books at the thrift store.  When we are walking to the store from the car he is saying 'ba, ba, ba,' which means book in Howard speak.  It's so funny how kids put things together like that.  But, anyway, I was able to find a couple of tops, and Howard of course got some new books...
1 Short-sleeved Blue Shirt for Me $4.99 - 50% off Sale = $2.49
1 Short-sleeved White Shirt for Me $2.99 - 50% off Sale = $1.49
4 Books for Howard $0.99 each - 50% off Sale = $0.49 each or 4/$1.96
+ Tax (for Books) $0.12
Total OOP: $6.06
Saved $6 or 50%!!!!
